The Importance of Music


When we first see the trailer to a movie, it has about 1 to 2 ½ minutes to basically give you an idea of what the movie is going to be about, why it’s appealing, and make you wait with a ridiculous amount of anticipation for this movie to come. Music a big part of that process. The right song can make you feel an overwhelming amount of emotion for a short period of time and feel connected to characters you don’t even really know about.

 

Here are our picks for the best music for movie trailers:

 

1. Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syWnuTK8OlU

This song is the perfect because of its timing and gives basically screams film festival/Oscar contender. It’s soft and powerful at the same time. The song has become so popular its starting to catapult the band to a lot more exposure to a much larger market.

 

2. Creep by Scala & Kolnacy Brothers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB95KLmpLR4

The version of  this song is so haunting and encapsulates the Facebook experience so perfectly and our desires to show the best of ourselves to the world.

 

3. Moth’s Wings by Passion Pit

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwavA7RIVpQ

Starting at around the 1 minute 18 second mark, this song makes you truly believe that anything is possible and makes you really want to root for the characters and their quest to help the whales get to the ocean.

 

4. Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66TuSJo4dZM#t=88

This brass heavy piece basically inspired modern movie trailers, with the what we will now call “The Inception Horn” constantly blaring in the background giving a sense of urgency and it’s something that a lot of trailers had adopted every since.

 

5. Wake Up by Arcade Fire

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01-PqqifyjA#t=114

The lyrics for this song match the story perfectly and the upbeat tempo just makes you want to go have an adventure of your own.

 

6. Nero by Two Steps From Hell

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPGLRO3fZnQ

Once again proving that you don’t need lyrics to make music powerful. Much like the Mind Heist, the heavy brass and sweeping orchestra reflects aristocratic Russia as portrayed by Tolstoy’s iconic novel.
